The North - California
Highlights in San Francisco
Description: San Francisco and the other cities around the Bay form the second largest metropolis in California. San Francisco alone has over 800,00 residents. It was named after Francis of Assisi.
Because of its great location directly on the Pacific Ocean and the San Francisco Bay, and its sometimes very steep streets, the city has often provided the setting for movies and television productions. For tourists, the city offers many great highlights.
Our rating: San Francisco is one of our favorite cities in the US. You can reach a lot on foot, because many of the highlights are close together. It's just fun to stroll through this relatively chilled city. In our opinion, every USA visitor should stand at the Golden Gate once.
